Does the new "+new related topic" only work for admin?


(Pad Pors) #1

in our case even moderators do not have access to the “create related topic” which is now in the share button.

Something must be off in your install as I have access to it here and I’m not a Moderator or Admin…


(Pad Pors) #3

yes, the same exist for me in meta-discourse.

any idea if there’s a setting to make this option on/off? i couldn’t find any setting using the keywords: “linked topic” in the admin panel.

What TL is your moderators? As I think reply as new topic is limited by TL too.


(Pad Pors) #6

yes, you were right. i changed the TL from 2 to 3, and the option shows up. Thanks for your help Cpardio :slight_smile:

why would the option needs such high TL? as it just helps the forum to be clean and the topics get connected using the users contribution. of course non-relevant linking of topics will do the vise versa!

is there any other reason than non-relevant linking?

Hmm… that doesn’t seem right. Based on the code, it seems to be TL 1

any check i can do in order to find out what’s going on/help in this issue?

Not sure. I can’t reproduce it. On my sandbox (which is running latest of tests-passed), changing a TL 0 user to TL 1 makes the option appear.

my mistake! you’re right, and i’ve made mistakes about TL. :frowning: !

sorry & thanks for the time.
